December 2014 Release Night

Tonight's the night.

All of the new products we've been showcasing this week will be available for purchase at www.wplus9.com as well as at many of your favorite retailers. But before they officially go on sale, we still have lots more to share with you.

I have four cards to share with you today featuring the Knock Knock Valentine stamp set.

This set is filled with - you guessed it - punny knock-knock jokes! I created a fun shaker box using the previously released Clear Cut Stackers: Rounded Rectangles die and filled it with Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

These little shaker boxes, sans card base, would make fun class valentines. Don't you think?

I added the penguin and fox from Winter Pals to opposite corners of the shaker. I think the playful styles compliment each other perfectly. The "Happy Valentine's Day" speech bubble along with the solid speech bubble in this set, coordinates with the long speech bubble in the Conversation Bubbles Die. Bonus!

To finish off the scene, I used our Landscape Borders Die cut twice from White cardstock and once from vellum to create some hills of snow and a little ice. A little Wink Of Stella Glitter brushed over the vellum helps add to the suggestion of ice.

Want to know a secret? This set was supposed to be released last December, but there was a mistake in one of the stamps. By the time it was noticed, it was too late to get it corrected and so I held them until this year....and then almost forgot all about them! LOL Thanks for the reminder Pat!

There are also a few separate speech bubble sentiments along with a solid blank speech bubble in this set that can be used alone like I've done in the next pair of cards.

Two super clean and simple designs. I started by stamping the solid speech bubble three times vertically in Ocean Drive, Wild Mango, and Sweet Nectar dye ink.

SIDE NOTE: Why have I not used this color combo before? Love.

For the first one, I just stamped the "Be Mine" and "You're So Sweet" speech bubbles direction over top in Memories Black dye ink. I finished it by adhering the panel to the card base using a little foam tape.

And for this one, I die cut the speech bubble using the Conversation Bubbles Die and stamped "Happy Valentine's Day" onto it. I added it to the center using foam tape and then added my panel to my card base, again using foam tape. I like to add a little foam tape for dimension when possible for super simple designs.

Either of these designs would be perfect masculine "love" cards, nothing to fancy or girly.

Speaking of fancy and girly...

Um, yeah...I puked poured girly all over this card. LMAO

Again, I used the Clear Cut Stackers: Rounded Rectangles to create a smart phone. I used the larger rectangle for the base and then just cut a smaller rectangle from white for the screen. I stamped the "knock-knock" text message exchange alternating between Stampin' Up Regal Rose and Memento Gray Flannel.

And for the "home button" I used a Studio Calico wood veneer heart that I painted white with Copic Opaque White Pigment. A little different from my norm, but sometimes it just feels good to do something different. ;o)

I hope you've enjoyed the projects shared today. The Design Team is also sharing more on their blogs as well, be sure to stop by and check them out!
